Overlanding Across USA in a Custom-made MiniCamper | Morella Koifman & Raul Sotillo

What is next for a Venezuelan couple that traveled in a VW Camper crossing Central America all the way to Texas and then went all the way to Jacksonville and Miami?


Well, they decided to cross Spain in a motorcycle! This year we observed the construction of a bed frame to create an unique mini-camper to drive from Miami, Florida to California.

These are their first pictures of  Morella and Raul overlanding across USA. So far, they have camped in State Parks and a Walmart “resort”.


We are following their outdoors life learning experience and we will share their photos as they continue their journey inside this unique mini-camper.

“Overlanding describes self-reliant adventure travel to remote destinations where the journey is the primary goal. … While expedition is defined as a journey with a purpose, overlanding sees the journey as the purpose.” #Wikipedia.

Jacksonville went back to normal after Hurricane Irma. We observed cargo ships, fishing boats, and sport boats using St Johns River to connect the city to the sea.  Lessons after the storm. Recovering is a task of all our community and visitors.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

We continue these lessons after Hurricane Maria and Mexico earthquake. Be prepared for emergencies.

A picture can teach different kind of lessons. Exploring a new city is an opportunity to learn about culture, history, economics, living style and much more. This is just an example. Venice, Italy uses water ways to function as a dynamic city. #exploringvenice #transportation #tourism #history
